Yesterday, my lovely Bess was feeling a little blue, she was a little homesick for her other home (of course when she is at her other home, she is homesick for here – that’s the kind of girl she is).

As Bess and Joe/Frank had missed the birthday of their baby brother, we then decided to make him a gift. After much deliberating, we decided upon a George.

Inspired by the purchase of a George & Martha DVD during the week:

There was much pinning and stuffing:

And placement of buttons:

And the completed George:

On the train on the way to his new home:
